to elect mitt romney and paul ryan the next president and vice president of the united states? as always a great crowd in ohio. this is outstanding. i've done a lot of campaign rallies over the past couple of weeks and i've decided i've boiled my reasons for supporting mitt romney and paul ryan down to three reasons. the first, president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that's not true. it's the work that the governor and i have done with all of you to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was
. then mitt romney talking about the upcoming election. >> this weekend, millions of our fellow americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey on wednesday with governor christie, and witnessed some of the terrible devastation firsthand. it's heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even some of the first responders who repeatedly put themselves in harm's way to bravely save the lives of others have suffered losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. and as president, i promise them this -- your country will be there for you for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i've been in constant contact with governors and mayors in the affected areas, who are doing an excellent job in extraordinarily difficult circumstances. and we owe the first responders and national guardsmen who have been working around the clock our deepest gratitude. our number one concern has been making sure that affected states and communities have everything t

the political ramifications of the storm in the coming days. we are nine days to go until the election. i want to go live first to asbury bark on the new jersey shore where we go through the latest, including what you were talking about. we could see the aftereffects through election day. >> exactly, david. this is a monster storm. right now, it's about 260 miles south-southeast of cape hatteras but it's also 395 miles east of new york city. it is a sprawling system. tropical force winds extend out 500 miles from the center of the storm. this is 1,000 miles in diameter. it's making its way along the coast. right now, it's a category 1 storm. it's going to parallel the coast for 24 hours. late monday night, early tuesday morning, the path of the storm brings it on shore in central coastal new jersey. the worst part of the storm is the northeast quadrant. that northeast quadrant, if it follows this path, we expect it to will put it in line for coastal new jersey, new york city connecticut, new england. the storm surge is going to be anywhere from five to ten feet above normal tide. it's going to
days before election day. we've got some live pictures. take a look out of wisconsin where president obama is preparing to speak before a ton of reporters in milwaukee. the president won wisconsin in 2008 with 56% of the vote in that state. this time around, the campaign, though, admits the state could be in play with congressman paul ryan on the gop ticket. we'll bring you the president's remarks live from milwaukee as soon as they get things started there. >>> and after weeks of polls that put the race up in the air, there are signs the president is solidifying a top position in the race. take a look at this. two new nbc news "wall street journal" polls, pairist polls shows the president holding on to a six-point lead in ohio. you know the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frene
on election day now is a lot of those folks who probably would have early voted, they're going to show up on election day and cast ballots. so the question is how many of these people are actually voting for obama? how many are voting for romney? obviously we don't know. indications are from our poll is that romney is winning the key demographic or the key swing voters or the key swing state, and that's the independent voters. he is marginally winning them. he is also doing well with north florida democrats, certain crossover democrats, rural democrats. he pulls about 16% of them on our poll, where as obama only pulls about 5% republican support. so that crossover appeal so to speak of romney's in florida and the independent edge that he appears to have is making a difference. but good campaigns can change polls. they're not changed by polls. and the question is who turns out their voters and who does it best. we're going to find out today. today is the last day of early voting. and then on tuesday that's when the ball game is. >> mark murray, let me bring you in. both men have these op-e
election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing them with a better future. and this has been a very stable race in ohio. largely because of the senator who is taking the podium soon, sherrod brown. this is one of the hidden stories of ohio. we've heard a lot about the auto bailout being successful here. sherrod brown is still a very powerful organization of working class democrats who in the past have sometimes gone republican. this year, they're holding obama up is making him look pretty good in ohio is that he's got these working class white voters that he lacks in some other states. >> well, it is interesting, aaron, when i was talking to both the romney and obama campaign folks here in columbus yesterday, they said they're going to be watching not suburban columbus, but cuyahoga county and a lot of those working class voters, of course, also african-american voters, but they're loo
>> what he did was inexplicable a week before the election. >> sean: i agree with you. the president is nowhere to be found on benghazi but he'll be out there for the victims of the hurricane. that's all the time we have left. thanks for being with us. seven days from today. see you tomorrow night. >> greta: tonight it's not over. mega monster storm sandy slamming our country with misery and devastation. the death toll has climbed to 48. in the last 24 hours more than 8 million without power from north carolina to virginia to new jersey to connecticut to maine. more than 15,000 cancelled flights, stranding passengers from coast to coast and even overseas they could not get home. the latest estimate, 20 billion dollars in property damage. now we all wish sandy would go away, but she is not. right now she's still a large storm now hitting her latest target, the midwest. in chicago the storm giving a whole new meaning to the windy city. dangerous winds, gusts slamming the lake front. in lake michigan, the surf is extremely high, massive waves crashing over the break wall.
-funded, government- run unions, the union leaders have the dues from the workers, support elected officials that they are interested in getting into office. the union leaders negotiate with those elected officials. the contracts are then paid for with funded tax dollars. that is why jfk was completely against the government tax- funded unions. there is a huge difference. i don't feel that people are understanding this. host: mr. bennett, i will give you the last word here of this last segment of the "washington journal." guest: gwen's is correct. not only was jfk opposed to public employees unions but also franklin d. roosevelt was against public employees unions. we are negotiating with ourselves. when it comes to unions, we have been successful in ohio in getting the republican message across to union members. we receive about 40% of the union vote in ohio. i am very proud of that because it is a message that the private-sector unions understand that if the economy is growing and jobs are increasing, their lives are better off. that is why i think that in many cases we will get a substant
. he's live in pensacola, florida, one of the critical swing states in this election. mitt romney is headed your way today in hopes of winning over undecided voters there, paul. but how close is it politically in the sunshine state right now? >> reporter: it is very close in the sunshine state. in fact, take a look at this, christi. this is the most recent poll we did about a week ago. you can't get much closer among likely voters. mitt romney with a one-point edge, but that's all tied up in the sampling error. this is the first of three stops today for mitt romney across the state. he'll be campaigning with marco rubio, the popular freshman senator here in florida. we had this up on our website cnn.com. you can see how much attention florida is getting. both the candidates made well over 20 trips each here to the sunshine state since the start of the general election back in april. you can see both campaigns pouring in tens of millions of dollars to run ads in this state. 20 electoral votes up for grabs in florida. that's why both campaigns are spending a lot of attention on flor
a factor in the final push for votes and if the effects linger, might even affect turnout on election day. that said, there are so many factors to consider, so much forecasting in the form of polling. there's new cnn/orc numbers tonight on the race in ohio. you all know how important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is
